Knapp predicts Cris Cyborg fights Ronda Rousey in 2014


Ronda Rousey has said she wants to keep busy in 2014, and she is, taking a fight with Olympic medalist in wrestling Sara McMann less than two months after a punishing title defense vs. Miesha Tate. Next in line after McMann is Cat Zingano, who was in line for a title shot before a knee injury forced her replacement by Tate.

And if Invicta FC founder knows anything - and she knows more about women's MMA than anyone alive - the fight after that could be Cris 'Cyborg' Justinho.

The new TUF strawweight show will break all the former TUF show records. @criscyborg will drop to 135lb & challenge Ronda.

So Rousey could concievably face McMann, Zingano, and Cyborg in a row this year!

I spent years waiting for the Mayweather vs Pacquiao superfight and have absolutely no intention of ever doing that sh*t again. Get back to me when Cris Cyborg and Ronda Rousey step inside the cage and the fight starts.

Missed this post. Are you aware that Cyborg has already lost? And it was to a Brazilian can that now fights at 135? She will lose again in her career. The funny thing is it might not even be Ronda that does it. Watch it be a challenger that everybody thought was going to get destroyed by Cyborg.

Here's some questions for you. What title did Gina hold in MMA? Who did she suffer her only loss to in Muay Thai?

You know nothing about WMMA. Sarah Kaufman is a much better bantamweight than Shayna Baszler. Better record, better wins, and more impressive opponents. Kaufman also beat Shayna back in 2009. Look up the fight sometime on YT. It wasn't very competitive. Miesha beat Marloes Coenen. You know who else she beat? Elaina Maxwell. That just so happens to be Gina's best win in her career.

Liz dominated Coenen for most of their 4 round fight before getting subbed. And that was with just 11 days notice and 8 months of MMA experience. Whereas she had Ronda's back for one minute. And still didn't make it out of the first round. And keep in mind that Marloes Coenen is the 2nd best featherweight in WMMA history. Completely dominated by a newbie.

Explain something for me. If Cyborg's opponents are so good, why did they lose to Kaufman, Tate, Baszler, Davis, and McMann, etc? Women that are supposedly lower tier? How come Marloes Coenen couldn't beat Miesha Tate? Who is lucky if she's 5th best at 135. Did you know that Budd and Gomes are the 3rd and 4th best fighters at 145, and Ronda subbed them both in a minute combined? How about Fiona Muxlow? You know the undersized chick that Cyborg battered for her first Invicta fight? She would lose to all of the top ten 135ers in the UFC. Cyborg fans brag about the beating that Cyborg put on her, as if it was some big accomplishment. Most of them probably didn't even know who Muxlow was until Cyborg fought her. I bet you can't answer any of these questions. Your WMMA knowledge can be summed up like this...Cyborg is a beast. She would kill Ronda. Dana would never let them fight because he knows Ronda would lose. Gina is hot. I wish her or Miesha were the face of the sport instead of Ronda.Ronda sucks. She needs to be beat down by Cyborg and be humbled.

Shannon didn't have to say anything. That would have been better than telling everybody that she had a good relationship with the UFC, and they told her it was untrue. What happened made her look ridiculous. It would be the equivalent of this..."I'm very close to John, and he told me the rumors are untrue. He is not getting married to Kim."2 weeks later:"I would like to congratulate John and Kim. It was a very beautiful ceremony. I wish them a long and happy marriage."

Cyborg doesnt have huge muscles and um have you seen Ronda she also has some big muscles.  Cyborg is just freaky strong and hits like a truck and no woman will be able to take her power.  Oh and being the bigger stronger WOMAN fighter will most likely win fights.     Ronda is stronger than most which is why she was ragdolling Miesha and no one else did that to Miesha at all.
